Gurudev Uvaacha #5

Perhaps the term “directing” should be changed to “listening.” Just because you’ve done a good job of explaining something doesn’t mean that the person you’re speaking to has gotten it. You have to play close attention and feel the response in order to be able to tell whether an actor is on the same page with you.

- Judith Weston in her wonderful book "The Film Director's Intuition"
